Patent Seekers recently launched an innovative analysis designed to help entrepreneurs and investors make key product, market and investment decisions.
Do you understand IP? For some start-up companies and inventors Intellectual Property (IP) can be an unknown commodity. Having a basic understanding can help to inform business decisions and ensure you are able to support your innovation going forward. This could include approaching the relevant experts including intellectual property researchers such as Patent Seekers and/or patent, design or trademark attorneys for guidance as needed*.
With this in mind we were recently asked if there were any questions that newcomers to IP often ask. There are many, and so we asked Sue Leslie also relatively new to both IP and Patent Seekers, to develop an article answering some of these questions, including:
Should I keep my invention secret?
What is a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)?
Can I carry out my own prior art search?
Developed from a newcomers’ perspective we hope it answers many of the questions people new to IP may face.
Sue Leslie works as part of our Marketing and Business Development team, based in the UK but supporting development worldwide. Why not reach out on LinkedIn and grow your connections?
